I’ve recently taken on some things in my life that have really cut down on my available workout hours. I’m very lucky that I am able to drop off and pick my son up at school. Family time is not something, I’m willing to compromise on. Getting up earlier is not going to happen either, 4am come early enough.
So what am I going to do? Go back to being fat? No thank you. Although I have to make a confession. I have daydreams of letting myself completely go. Eating like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day if you have ever seen that movie. It’s a pretty sweet daydream.
But it ain’t happening. Never again is my motto.
Do you have a schedule like that? A schedule where you have 5 minutes here, 10 minutes there. That’s not enough time to workout!
It isn’t enough time if you are trying to run a marathon, but if you are trying to lose fat and get in shape you can make it happen.
Here a “When You Can” workout I did the other day:
1. Got home from teaching my first class:
20 seconds of work, 10 seconds of rest for 8 round. Alternating between pushups and kettlebell swings every round. Took about 4 minutes.
2. Throughout the day:
Randomly run up and down the stairs. Also helps break the monotony of working.
Dropping down into a plank for 30 seconds here and there.
3. Just before I went to pick up my son:
5 minutes of sprints in the yard
4. Had 10 minutes:
20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest for 8 rounds for numbers 1 and 2 below.
1. Weighted hip thrusts
2. Alternated between overhead presses and squat/upright row.
5. That night while grilling fish:
15 minutes of Goblet squats, barefoot sprints with the little man, and checking Facebook (keeping it real).
All of that adds up. Look through your day, you have little pockets of time where you can do something! This goes for anybody. Even if you workout every day, you still need to become more active overall.
Audit you day and find out where you are wasting time. Eliminate the waste and fit in some physical activity.
